I’ve spent a lot of time injured this last year. I’ve always sort of prided myself on being pretty healthy physically, and this year has really been a challenge as I’ve tried to get off the couch and get more fit. And now I add a shoulder injury to the mix. I fell and sprained/strained my shoulder at work and am having to do physical therapy in order to help it get back in shape.
One good thing that’s come from this is that I’ve looked into physical therapy and discovered that in Indiana you do not have to have a doctor’s referral in order to see a physical therapist. This is what I am pretty certain I need for my leg. I still cannot run, and the ache is still in the same place and only flares up when I try to run. So, I talked to the people at Fast Track Physical Therapy and I will be going for a consultation/initial appointment on Friday. I am looking forward to this. I am so tired of just sitting and waiting to get better, and being unsure what I should do, all the while fearing that I’m going to lose all the progress I’ve made these last few months on strengthening my body. I am now stronger than I probably ever have been, and I don’t want to lose it.
